Very nice work about rare birds in Lithuania, but this pcture is a first winter Razorbill, not a Little Auk.

So in this case it must have been a "pygmy razorbill", as the bird's body length was only 20 cm.

Photos can be suprisingly confusing when out of size comparison. Pay attention also at relative bill lenght and presence of white streakings on wing coverts.

Still think that the bill is too big for a little auk. But maybe you are rigth. Congratulations for the web page and the nice pictures.

I agree, Jose, bill looks unusually longer due to slender corpse appearance. It looks much shorter on alive bird when puffy :) For sure, idea to show historical data on rarities of Lithuania including nice pictures was great !

Yes, Rex, you are right, now it´s clear for me that the appearance of the dead animal makes the bill looks longer. Mr Jusys was right.
